Abstract

The paper focuses on how talk about texts is carried out in university seminars in England and italy. It is argued that the patterns of textual citaiton engaged in by participants in a particular context constitute a set of shared literary practices that the students have to acquire to become parts of the academic community. It is suggested that the different ways of talking about texts in the two academic contexts relate to cultural differences in the interpretation of teaching and learning in England and Italy.
